As you all have noticed, i find myself drawn to dresses and skirts oflate, I still have to figure out whats up with that. This day, I decided to do different shades of denim to achieve my monochromatic effect rather than matchy matchy. The skirt is a darker shade while the shirt was lighter. What i love mostly about the skirt is the wrap and midi length.
To break down the outfit from being too casual, i decided to add pops of color with the neon bib necklace, neon pink neckpiece that I used as a bracelet and earrings. I realised that when I tucked in the shirt, It looked frumpy, so I settled for a cropped looked and tied the shirt at the waist baring a little midriff.
The milky white sandals were a plus for me especially to add a twist to the outfit and some flirt to the whole ensemble

The last few days, have been the hardest I have ever experienced in my life and It made me sit and evaluate my life in a way I have never done before. I lost the only grandma' I have ever known and It really shook me up because I was fortunate enough to take after her ethnic name and still be with her till the day she left for the hospital and passed on a few hours later. But on the morning of her burial, we got attacked by thugs at home and I really thought I would lose my brother as they mercilessy injured him, but a surgery later hes doing really well and I can only thank God for the far He's brought us.....Every new day I can only be grateful for the gift of life. In this post, its all about the dark moments gearing up to the grey shades and hopefully for the brighter days to come. All i can do is thank all my closest friends and family for being there for me through It all and for the strength this adversity has given us all and brought together my family.
Hallo fashionistas, who else is obsessed with strappy sandals like I am. Well this time round I decided to wear my denim with sandals to add that elegant look to the outfit since it was super casual. This was my Saturday outfit I wore on a day out bowling with my buddies.I went for a simple denim sleeveless shirt and added distressed jeans on to add the playful edgy look.
I accessorized with a gold butterfly bib necklace, pink studs and a navy chainbag

Happy new week my good people, My name is Maureen and I am obsessed with stripes....I seriously cannot keep my hands off. I have blogged about these pants before here and this time round I decided to combine it with neon accents.
A simple luminous green blouse seemed to be my perfect choice...then I added little pops of neon pink with the earrings and the heart shaped purse
Finished it off with these cobalt blue platforms with the matching bib necklace and my lovely animal print geeks and a red bold lip.
What do you think of my outfit....drop me a line below!
How more feminine can lace be.....I find it quite girly with a touch of sexy. It was such a huge trend in 2011 but the beauty of it, is that it never goes of style. So, you can imagine my delight when I came across this hi-lo top. With the sun baring down on us lately....It was perfect for this weather.
I paired it up with these distressed jeans for a little edgy feeling,one because of the colliding of the two different textures and two being the jeans was low waist.
I used pops of bold color to add some sassiness to the outfit...This Chloe chain bag is one of my faves because it fits most of stuff and the color is just adorbs.
I complemented it with the scarlett red pumps, love the studs on the side and you would never believe I got 'em for only ksh 100,no bargaining no nothing....well I am still pinching myself in disbelief.
I did different shades of purple with the violet earrings and the bag....then I did a side pony of my hair and added cobalt blue pearls as a hair band

Happy Friday my good people......mmmh the smell of the weekend just drifting and I could not be happier....you know what am talking about! Lets talk fashion....right?
This is an outfit I wore last friday on my way to run a few errands....I have wrote about this maxi before in my blog archives,. so this time I decided to add a touch of boho and a lil' glam to it and brought in the cropped top with the pop of color and the accessories. I love how such a tops can change an outfit in a snap...I wore mine off shoulder for that peekaboo effect on the maxi.
I had a thought to cinch it up at the waist but decided against it at the last minute.
I held my hair up in a high pony to show off this gorge emerald green drop earrings and added this cobalt blue bib necklace.
Finished it off with a bold red lip, black booties and this magenta satchel bag!

There you have my stripes obcession, Lemmie know what you think of it.....
2013 is all about bold patterns and the printed pants do not fall off the radar......I liked this floral pair but had quite some challenge getting the best blouse to go with it.
I went for solid colors to balance off the noisy print......the pants are high waisted, so i did a white hi- lo button up shirt
My accessories were very few.....a pearl DIY neck piece and a cobalt blue bib neckace then finished it off with patent black sling backs

Honestly, I am obsessed with this summer trend......STRIPES. Not only are they adorable and chic, they add that bold and daring element to your look. I recently just bought these pants, ofcos I was concerned I might end up looking like a jailbird but the eclectic part of me had to have em.
I first spotted nautical vertical striped pants on Elle MacPhearson in the fashion star reality show and since then being hoping to get me a perfect pair. They are really dramatic trousers and definitely make a statement. I was concerned about looking like a jailbird but the eclectic side of to me won over so i had to add it in my closet.
I always find black and white goes well with bold hues so i went for the red cropped jacket and a bold bronze neck piece.
I kept the accessories to a minimal and added a non competing blue woven purse
I did a black tank and black booties so as not to compete with the stripes, then
a tangerine hair bow

Happy holydays everyone, isn't the festive season just out of this world....how are you spending your's? well for me its that time for family and friends,the only time you give them endless attention and just relax and be at ease. Its during this season i decided to go all out with the 80's look, the hair and the whole outfit. Peplum dresses and tops were popular in the 1940s, and had a huge revival in the 1980s, so if you’re after a more 40s style you can often pick up 80s dresses for next to nothing at any flea markets or vintage shops and you can make em to your taste and style and with the right hair and accessories they look amazing.
This electric green peplum dress was originally very long, so I decided to make it a party dress and made it shorter, take a look at my previous post, i made a scarf out of the extra material.
I really love this white croc skin peep toe platforms but i never get to wear them much.....they pretty high but suprisingly comfortable. I like the metallic pink heel.
I went for an 80's hah irdo.....i really love the big hair bun that i made, then complemented it with a crimson red lip and an emerald blue bib necklace.
I wanted a tiny briefcase-ish purse and this really went well my ka dress.
Finished it off with this white button earrings.

Hi y'all feels like a minute but got down with a bout of flu last week and it was the worst i have ever had. But am fine and am believing you to be fab too.
Well i finally got to do my hair and i went for something very simple that i can play around with.
I got this denim shirt dress in Machakos as i was visiting home a few weeks ago and i could not wait to dress it up. There are countless ways to wear this dress and i will break it down for you as time goes by.
I wore it simply just like a dress, buttoned it up and added a gold collar necklace to spruce up the outfit
I added a pop of color with the tangerine tassel earrings and held my hair up in a side pony and roped it up.
Finished it off with these bronze peep toe ankle boots from chinese laundry with ruffles and carried a brown leather bag
